Lift Every Voice: Chicago's Black Struggle, 1960-1975

By Dr. Gloria Latimore-Peace

Presented by Omni-U Virtual University

"Lift Every Voice: Chicago's Black Struggle, 1960-1975" is another of the vintage H3O Art of Life Shows that features Artist, Poet, Playwright and Author Useni Eugene Perkins who is also editor of "Rise of the Phoenix": Voices from Chicago's Black Struggle, 1960-1975" which was published by Third World Press Foundation. Appearing with Useni is Professor Charles Grantham, author of "The Battle for Kemet" which was published by The Kemetic Institute.

"Rise of the Phoenix" begins with a quote by our revered Ancestor, Paul Robeson: "The artist must elect to fight for freedom or slavery. I have made my choice. I had no alternative." This quotation applies to Useni Perkins, Charles Grantham, Dr. Haki Madhubuti, Founder of Third World Press Foundation, Ancestor Dr. Jacob H. Carruthers, Founding member of the Kemetic Institute, Founding Director of The Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations, and Founding member and Priest of The Temple of the African Community of Chicago, as well as all of the other Warriors who, like themselves, "have made the choice" to fight for freedom, i.e. to liberate our community from false ideas" as affirmed, not only by their words but by their works.
